The Conejo Free Clinic Provides Medical and Legal Services to Those in Need

The Conejo Free Clinic (CFC) is 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 1976 that provides medical and legal services to those who may have no access to care. The CFC provides services to over 5,000 people annually in our community.

Medical services provided by CFC include primary and preventative general medical services, pediatric clinics, including childhood and school-required immunizations, women's health services such as health exams, mammograms and other tests as well as patient advocacy services when necessary. Legal service clinics take place the first four Tuesday nights of each month.

All CFC providers (physicians, nurse practitioners, RN's, medical assistants, receptionists, etc.) are volunteers. The office is managed by a staff of four employees, supported by a 15 member Board of Directors from the community.

CFC helps those who don't have adequate access to medical care, including the uninsured and under-insured. Patients include those who just can't afford the high deductible for their insurance plan because they are unemployed as well as those who have run out of COBRA insurance.

The only form of payment that CFC receives is from donations from patients and, of course, from the community.  CFC relies on this and grants from other institutions and companies/foundations. CFC does not accept MediCare or MediCal.

Patients are encouraged to make appointments since clinics are conducted as a physician and nurse are available.  For acute cases, a patient will be "squeezed" in to receive treatment.

Please consider supporting the great service that the Conejo Free Clinic provides to the local community. To donate, CLICK HERE. To volunteer services, CLICK HERE.

If you are in need of CFC services, learn more at www.ConejoFreeClinic.org or call 805.497.3575. CFC is located at 80 Hillcrest Drive, Suite #102, Thousand Oaks (just east of Moorpark Road).
